Nicolás Orsini was officially presented as a new player of Boca Juniors, a challenge for which he claimed to be “ready”, although he admitted that surely his “life will change from now on” in all aspects.
The 26-year-old forward, born in Morteros (Córdoba Province), arrived at Xeneize from Lanús and is the second incorporation for Miguel Ángel Russo’s team, which has already recovered Marcelo Weigandt from his loan at Gimnasia LP.
At a press conference, Orsini assured that he was ready to wear the shirt of one of the most important teams in South America: “If I weren’t ready, I wouldn’t have signed a contract. It is true that the pressure between Lanús and Boca may be different. It is a challenge and I feel prepared. Hopefully I can get the most out of this opportunity. “
“Surely my life will change from now on and I have to take on other responsibilities as a person,” the attacker accepted.
“The priority is in the day to day (when they ask him about the Libertadores and the classic with River in the Argentine Cup). You have to be sure that we are in a great club and that all the others respect us in a great way ”.
“I am a person who likes to learn from these types of players. It is important to have these people in the club. You have to take advantage of it and get the most out of it. I thanked Roman (Riquelme) for this opportunity ”.
Meanwhile, the former garnet, who made his debut in First at Atlético Rafaela and then made several stops in different leagues around the world such as South Korea, Austria, Japan and Paraguay, before returning to Argentine football, acknowledged having a past linked to Boca Juniors.
When asked if as a boy he dyed his bangs like Martín Palermo, he replied: “It’s a real anecdote. Admire and respect the idols of this institution. I don’t want to compare myself to anyone and make my own career ”.
In addition, he told his test in the lower xeneizes: “At 15 I tried myself in Boca. I played for 3 years and Boca had been interested in me (a test in his town in which he stayed). I came, I stayed and I felt that it was not the moment. All that sacrifice (after the clubs he went through) led me here “.
And he explained: “Life in Buenos Aires is very different from that of my town. At that time (because of the 15-year-old test), I didn’t feel ready to live here. “
